The first PS5 gameplay video has been released and it looks f@*#en mint
With news having just dropped that the PS5 isn’t that far away, gamers everywhere are cracking big stiffies and getting a little bit moist at the thought of new and improved graphics and gameplay – not to mention a whole bunch of new titles! Obviously, that’s not a surprise. It’s been almost seven years since the PS4 was launched, and people are ready for the next generation of console games to blow their t-ts off. If a video posted by Epic Games is anything to go by, it’ll be worth the wait. The gameplay footage they’ve shown is in-f**ken-credible. Have a squiz…
Yeah, nah, whenever a new system is launched, it’s always kinda hard to imagine just how much better graphics can get, but if you’ve seen this video, you’ll be looking at your old console with more than a little disappointment.
But that s**t doesn’t matter. Sony has confirmed that the PS5 will be available in time for the holiday season, and Epic Games are showcasing their own new engine with the Lumen in the Land of Nanite demo.
TKim Libreri, Epic Games’ CTO told IGN that what we’re seeing is actual gameplay. “An HDMI cable went into a disc recorder and played out real-time — no editing, no tricks, that’s what comes off the box.” Have a squiz at the footage and tell us it’s bloody mint.
And yeah, some people say games don’t need to get more realistic, but whatever your standpoint, you can’t deny that it looks f**ken shmick.
According to Epic, the new engine will be available for developers early next year and will be compatible with all the new consoles.
Speaking about Lumen in the Land of Nanite, Epic said, it was running live on a PlayStation 5, “showcasing two new core technologies that will debut in UE5: Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry, which frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see, and Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination solution that immediately reacts to scene and light changes.”
In plain English, Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney reckons the Unreal Engine 5 will “do things that are absolutely not possible today.”

Final thought: Yeah, nah, we don’t know about you lot, but we’re a bit excited about this. Deadset, the s**t looks grouse. Have a bloody squiz and let us know what you reckon in the Facebook comments.
